Bennett Points out Howell Could Die in Office, Too

September 20, 2012

Utah's Senate race continued its morbid turn: After Democratic nominee Scott Howell suggested in a fundraising email that 78-year-old GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch could die in office, former Utah Sen. Bob Bennett pointed out that Howell could die in office, too.

"Scott Howell may die before his term is up" if he's elected, Bennett told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Who knows."

The Tribune:

But Bennett noted that he wasn't going to weigh into Howell's accusations. "I'm not going to make any guesses as to Orrin's longevity," Bennett said.

Howell later responded in a statement, per the Tribune: "Bob Bennett is right when he says that I may not live to see the end of my term as U.S. Senator. I propose that Orrin Hatch and I both release five years worth of medical records to show voters that we will hopefully both be around at least until November 6."
